We are excited to join you throughout this process. We understand that auditions/interviews are an exciting yet nervous time for both students and families. In order to minimize your anxiety, please consider that we understand that you are a developing performer, designer, or technician. We don't expect you to be perfect. Think about the audition process as an opportunity to share your talents with our faculty members. Don't think of it as a "life or death" situation. Be assured that the faculty listening to you is interested in you and your progress. We want you to feel at ease and to be able to perform to the best of your ability. We are on your side during this journey, and we want you to be successful!
